thecpt: rebelyell2006: Weidbrewer: Someone wanna give those of us who don't have our short-and-curlies all tied in big-ass knot an explanation as to WTF Subby's on about? How is moving an art installation from a (from what I've gathered here) bankrupt foundation into a museum "theft"?

A wealthy man bought massive amounts of artwork and objects of cultural/historical interest, but his will included various clauses that restricted the accessibility of his collection to a handful of art students every year, along with restrictions on how to take care of the collection and find funding for all costs related to the collection. The trustees could not agree on how to rectify the situation (some saying to let the collection remain where it was in storage with very limited public access, the others saying to move it to a public museum for all the public to see), and lawsuits started flying.


No, 1/1. I'm not typing up nine more posts on the subject.
